Choosing the right color scheme for a baby shower is not always easy. Pastels are certainly common, and when the gender is known many people choose to use the traditional pink for girls and blue for buys. What if you want something different? What if you want a baby shower that will stand out in everyone's mind for years to come? Starting with elegant baby shower invites, you can make a bold statement with pale metallic colors and stunning filigrees.
Transform your home by covering your usual wall hangings and decorative items with a customized elegant wrapping paper. You can put the name of the baby (if it has been decided) or just the family surname in a fancy font with scrolling gold and silver accents for a look reminiscent of European high society. Add some tassels and throw pillows to complete the look.
Keep with the elegant theme with your snacks and drinks. Avoid any food that is runny of could cause a mess, it's easier to handle smaller portions with individual toothpicks. How about a Caprice salad skewer of a single cherry tomato, mozzarella ball, artichoke heart and basil? Have a fancy bowl to one side for guests to gracefully deposit their discarded toothpicks so they don't pile up and spoil the atmosphere. Be sure to note on your elegant baby shower invites that food will be served so guests can let you know in advance of any food allergies.
With filigreed decorations and tiny, delicate party snacks, you can turn a baby shower into an elegant gala for your friends. If you and your crew are the type to go all out on a theme, then include an invitation to dress up somewhere on your elegant baby shower invites.

"I am so happy and pleased with the way my baby shower invitations turned out. It was simple yet I was able to use their format to customize the invite to my preference. I highly recommend tiny prints. I was weary in the beginning because I have never used them before, but now I will continue to use them for all my invitation and card needs."
"THE INVITATIONS WERE VERY CUTE. MY DAUGHTER, THE MOTHER TO BE, HAD A NICKNAME GROWING UP OF "LADYBUG" SO THIS WAS THE PERFECT CARD FOR THE BABY SHOWER. MY LADYBUG IS HAVING A LITTLE LADYBUG."
"My husband and I planned a fun and exciting baby shower for our second child, who is due this NOVEMBER. I was looking for a special kind of invitation to go with our theme, Gender Reveal. The card I found on Tiny Prints was spot on with its design. It matches our decor to a T!!! I was elated. Our shower is being hosted by my sister and all invites have been mailed. Everyone of our closest family and friends have only the best of compliments about the design of the invitation! We couldn't have made it better ourselves, absolutely AWESOME!"
